got from rick santorum, remember him, was a political overture wrapped around the idea of buying made in the usa christmas presents. yeah, rick santorum, it wasn't about evil obama care or how horrible it is that gay people want to get married or some imagined war on religion or any of the others rick santorum shtick, it was all about buying made in the usa stuff. i am thankful to report that the republican governor of iowa, terry branstad, is suggesting that the iowa republican party should get rid of its straw poll. not suggesting getting rid of the iowa caucuses, just the straw poll. which is not a real poll or a real election of any kind, just a republican party fund-raiser, where republican candidates bribe people and bus in people from all over the state for a big fake contest that the national media treat as a real thing. the iowa straw poll means nothing. it is a hoax that the republican party of iowa perpetrates on the country and the candidates every year, and the media goes along with it, every year, even though we all know that's true. but now the republican governor of th
. john bray bender is a republican strategist and top adviser to rick santorum and robert shrum, democratic strategist and columnist for the daily beast. john, you're on the inside. you know something about this. do you understand how somebody would think that the electorate that's going to participate in 2012, in a general election with barack obama, an african-american, a democrat, and a relatively popular president would create a different electorate than the one you saw say in 2010 or in a primary situation? >> well, i think -- as you know, every poll starts with an assumption. here is who we think is going to show up and vote, therefore that's who we ask the question of. republicans and not just the romney campaign, but republican pollsters all across the country guessed wrong. we didn't see the intensity that there was there for the president, particularly among young voters. we oversampled male white voters. and, you know, you add all that together and you're going to see two, three, four-point differences. plus, the assumption always is that the incumbent is not going to
santorum all be crowned somebody who is going to get the nomination for the republican party. didn't happen. nobody picked paul ryan. nobody knew the momentum was going to swing on the first debate. so all we can do is expect the unexpected. i think that stay tuned, it will be very anti-climatic for this to go as planned. >> ben smith, where do you think the real battleground will be? a lot of people are talking about ohio, pennsylvania, florida. the democrats still saying it could not go romney's way, all these things could be pivotal to how the election washes up. where will you be focused tomorrow night? >> look, mitt romney has -- obama has a lot of paths to victory. romney has very few. they will be states like virginia, florida. if obama wins those states, pretty much over. romney needs to run the table and do well in ohio and pennsylvania. those are must-wins for him. >> charles, when you look at both campaigns from start to finish, what do you think has run the better campaign? >> i think that this campaign has been what most campaigns are, a series of ups and downs for both sides,
santorum. good evening, senator. how are you? >> i'm doing graleat. how are you? >> we'll get to the fiscal cliff in a moment. first i want to ask you about david petraeus, certainly one of the greater men in my lifetime and a man of modern history. what do you feel about what's happened? >> well, it's very disturbing to be in a position like the director of the central intelligence agency. we all have our personal failings, and none of us are perfect, but to put yourself in that type of position and engage in activity which is -- could compromise your ability to do your job is something that is very, very disturbing and shows incredibly poor judgment, not just, obviously, for breaking his marital vows but for putting himself in a position that could compromise the agency. that is really very disturbing. that's the only way i can put it that he would engage in such conduct. >> there will be some people watching this, as they always do when these sort of sex scandals break who say, what will we do about his ability to do his skw job? what would you say in this case? >> this is a man who had
that michele bachmann or rick perry, or rick santorum didn't was running a personal candidacy. he didn't come in at the head of some movement, with ideological points to prove. what he believed i think and certainly what his campaign staff believed, was the country was heading down a terrible trajectory, it required a man of profound competition to fix, and he was going to present himself as somebody who was more competent than president obama in his closing argument, he said repeatedly to voters in wisconsin and new hampshire and virginia, you don't have to settle. what's holding us back from being a great nation is a lack of leadership. there is something both moving and ultimately very thin about the alternative that mitt romney presented because it was based so much on the promise of himself. >> yeah. the humanity, be we were talking about that -- what was supposed to be a victory celebration gone horly, horribly wrong, the sense they were on the precipes the golden ring was within their grasp and snatched at the very last minute was not something they were prepared for. >> not at all. as
with the gop going forward? >> i think paul ryan and rick santorum and a number of other candidates who certainly are going to be viable players going forward are also names to watch. but i think that the party standard bearer will likely be somebody who's able to reach a broad coalition going forward. more than just conservatives. and the republican base. whoever it is has to reach a lot more folks. >> yeah. so margie, chris christie, always being talked about for this. does his embrace of the president during hurricane sandy, do you think that hurts or helps him, in tells of both getting a nomination, and then being elected? because that can be two different things. >> i'm a new jersey native. and my stepfather has the same sort of new jersey attitude that chris christie has. i think that attitude, sometimes can be hurtful for chris christie in the case of hurricane sandy, it was really helpful to show he was going to say it like it is. which is, i'm here to help the people in new jersey, rather than play politics. i don't think it cost mitt romney the election at all. i think it's fo
about perry getting back into the race, santorum -- >> oh, lord help us, no. please. >> i swear. >> please, no, not the return of rick perry. you cannot be serious. >> i swear to you. >> oh, lord. okay, jimmy, mr. cuccinelli, he sued over obama care, lost. sued the epa, lost. is there anything more dangerous to a political party than a leader who consistently picks fight he loses? >> how many times do you have to lose to be kaumd a loser. >> right. >> let's be honest about this, you have -- and i'm a resident of the commonwealth of virginia. >> you are, indeed. you know this man. >> well, actually no, i really don't. i don't care that he's a republican. to me it's not about your political ideology. it's about whether or not you think people ought to have equal rights. the theory of separate but equal is no longer the law of the land. under the 14th amendment we've said, and look at the panel you have on the screen now, you have a gay man, latino woman, and an african-american woman. under mr. cuccinelli's sort of theory of law, the 14th amendment doesn't apply to me as a gay man
house. that primary ballot that was so bruises with rick santorum fan newt gingrich and an occasional rick perry shot. then he raised a lot of money throughout the country. headed into three critical debates. the first debate in denver focused the attention of the country on him and on his campaign. now all of that stuff is on the table for the american people to decide whether this man will be their next president. martha: governor romney and his wife ann have placed their votes. an historic moment for them, for their family. ann romney has been right by her husband's side throughout this process. she has been called at points the mitt stabilizer. the one brought in to be her husband's inspiration and comfort and strength and he would say the many the role she played throughout his life. early on you have to remember the mid-section of this race when the charge against him was he was not connecting with voters. he in the last several the weeks and certainly since the debate in denver which was a huge breakout moment for him, was connecting with these crowds in a way we did not see ea
time and a lot of money. the governor didn't win a lot of caucuses it went to senator santorum. the economy is very important here, like the rest of the country. immigration and also energy, but, yes, they both spent quite a bit of time here. the president, in fact, mete made 13 stops here, the most visits of any president, ever, making it here in colorado. >> i wonder, alicia, if there is a reason for that. if there is anything the president learned that filtered into his strategy for his 2012 run. did anything come from colorado? >> actually, this is something that ax a, one of the president's advisers talked about, early on in the run up to the re-election. this is early on, part of the strategy, as part of the 2012 run, modeled after the 2010 senate race, won by democrat michael bennett. senator ben bennett wofs know of the a handful of democrats who faired well on the election day, 2 years ago. he won by 29,000 votes when he beat the favorite, ken buck. the strategy by bennett, target hispanics, target scbem frame your opponent as an extremist. that's something that the pr
. >>> who is in, who is out? former senator rick santorum is not counting himself out for the run for president. >> we're a long way. i'm focused now on trying to stay involve in the fray and do the right thing on capitol hill and also that this debate in the republican party about what future of the part and where we're going to go, that we're going to be active and engaged and stick to american's founding principles. >> it's not a yes and it's not a no. >>> one candidate running again, governor chris christie filled out paperwork, gearing up to campaign for a second terp as governor. >> the public needs to know that i'm in this for the long haul. that the person who has helped to lead them through the initial crisis wants to be here to lead them through rebuilding and restoration of our state. it would be wrong for me to leave now. i don't want to leave now. we have a job to do. >> polls out in the past 24 ors show christie's approval rating is skyrocketing thanks to his response to superstorm sandy. >>> three top cabinet spots up for grabs. who is in, who is out? pi bill clinto
of the republican party is martinez and not new gingrich and rick santorum. i have a sneaking suspicion i think you might as well that four or eight years from now we are going to be talking about the great inroads that a republican presidential candidate has made with latinos in the electorate because i don't see anyplace for republicans to go but up. they have to adapt in order to be competitive this year. just looking at someone like chris christi down the road, republicans are going to kind of face a fork in the road in the future presidential nomination contest between someone who is able to bridge that gap between partisan appeal on the tea party right and independent voters or someone who is going to be stuck in that base and as the republican coalition continue to contract i think it is only going to be more difficult for someone to overcome that divided to win a nomination and be able to put it to a general election. there are people in the republican party who plausibly can win both the primary general election. >> will turn to the microphone where we will have a microphone so you can ide
